Kindergarten students at CPS walked through the gates for the first time on Wednesday whilst class was in session for MPS students on Thursday.

Cowra Public School Assistant PrincipalSheridan Oborn said it was always exciting to see the new students start.

“It’s always lots of fun having our new kindies come in, it’s lots of fun teaching them all the basic routines of school where to line up, how to put their hand up and how to go up stairs,” she said.

She said teachers at CPS also share the same enthusiasm for the first day of school.

“Our teachers are very passionate about all their students and look forward to the start of the year and meeting all the names on that are on a page and getting to know their students and tailoring their teaching to their students educational needs,” she said.

She said that the Year 1 cohort will now have to get used to the fact they are no the littlest ones in the school anymore.

“The kindergarten children from last year would still be talking about their teacher over the holidays and it’s strange for them to come back on the first day and no longer be kindergarten students, that they’ve moved on.

Kinder Purple and Kinder Aqua celebrated their first day at Mulyan Public School on Thursday.

Assistant Principal at MPS, Beatrice Murray said there were quite a few nervous Mums on Thursday morning but it was all smiles from the new students.

“I don’t know who was more nervous, the mums or the kids,” she said.

“But there were no tears this year so we are happy about that.”

After an extensive introduction program, Mrs Murray says kindergarten students were ready to feel at home at MPS.

“We are doing the best start assessment now, looking at where students are at and what teachers can do to help them,” she said.

She said she looks forward to seeing their journey through primary school.

“When Kindergarten comes, they are new, fresh face little children and by the end of Kindergarten they have grown in so many different ways,” she said.
